Cartoon Rage II Update from Reuters (thanks to Sr. Soph), which has apparently become an openly Islamic organization and now refers to Muhammad without qualification as “the prophet.”
Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen denounced members of the anti-immigrant Danish Peoples’ Party (DPP) youth wing on Sunday for drawing humiliating cartoons of the prophet Muhammad.
In Tehran, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said those who insulted the prophet were “low lifes,” cevoid [sic] of human values, the student news agency ISNA reported.
The two leaders’ condemnations followed Danish state TV’s airing on Friday of amateur video footage showing members of the DPP youth wing at a summer camp in August, drinking, singing and taking part in a competition to draw images mocking the prophet.
“I strongly condemn the behaviour of members of the youth wing of the Danish Peoples’ Party,” Rasmussen told Ritzau news agency.
“It is unacceptable behaviour by a small group of young people. Their tasteless behavior in no way represents the way the Danish people or young Danish people view Muslims or Islam,” Rasmussen said.
In other words, please don’t hurt us.
